Origin of Malding on Twitch
“Malding” was popularised by the chat of popular Twitch streamer Forsen, originally, the chat would spam “So Bad, So Mad”, which over time turned into “So Bald, So Mad” and finally into “So Bald, So Mald”. Forsen then looked up the word “Mald” in the dictionary to get a definition and the “Malding” meme was well and truly born.
